Eagle River Preserve open for summer

Contact: Toby Sprunk, Open Space Director, 970-328-8698 or toby.sprunk@eaglecounty.us

The Eagle River Preserve is now open to vehicles daily from dawn to dusk, following a winter closure to allow for wildlife habitat. County officials are offering a few reminders to ensure enjoyment of the property by all users:

• Stay on established paths. The vegetation is still young and developing. Be especially mindful of sensitive vegetation along the riverbank. 
• Dogs should be kept on a leash, except within the designated off-leash dog area.
• Pack out personal trash and any litter found. Trash containers are provided at the parking area.
• Review posted signs and rules.
 
The Eagle River Preserve includes approximately 72 acres just west of the main intersection in Edwards. Current amenities include a walking trail, benches, an off-leash dog area, access to the Eagle River for fishing, and a small pond. The entire former gravel pit will be available for public access once all phases of the restoration are complete. For more information on the Eagle River Preserve, visit www.eaglecounty.us/openspace.
